OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!! (in Off-topic)


SimplyNic August 12 2008 9:56 AM EDT

xD Due to recent events I'm fairly frustrated, so this is going to be complicated to keep PG, but I'm sure I can manage.

But to the subject at hand; STOP ARGUING OVER DUMB STUFF!!!!!!! That's all I ever see anymore on the home page. Ranger arguing with these guys and those guys and these guys arguing with these guys and those other guys (confused?). You know a trend that causes these arguments? An opinion. One freaking opinion is all it takes apparently. Everyone has them, whether or not we agree with it or disagree with it, everyone has one. And regardless as to WHAT we say there is no possible way to change someone's opinion. So when someone says something about "Hey, I don't like -this skill-". Okay... They don't like that skill. But THIS is ALWAYS WHAT SEEMS TO HAPPEN;
-I don't like this skill, its stupid
-But this skill is good for this and that
-But its still stupid because its over powered
-But its good for that and this
(carry on for like what was it... 150 pages on one of these forum posts?)

You know what the best bet is at this point? This works best in a spinny chair, but turn in a 180 degree direction until your looking away from the computer, stand up, slowly walk away and into oncoming traffic >:). Because that's pretty much the only way you're going to end the arguement over whatever the hell you guys are currently arguing about (I think its something about whether or not AoF is overpowered. Or maybe its evasion again? I stopped reading the page after I posted my one response. But regretfully I read one of those other forums for about 10 seconds). As I said before; An opinion is an opinion. EVERYONE HAS ONE. Arguing about it is not going to change the opinion. Even if its a carry on bitch-fest about whether or not a skills is being changed. If it hasn't changed yet then its not ready to be changed.

So just take a deep breath, close the thread, and walk away.

SimplyNic August 12 2008 9:57 AM EDT

Oh yea... Don't expect a response from me. Honestly I could care less about your (the reader's) opinion at this point.

QBJohnnywas August 12 2008 9:58 AM EDT

Shhh. Don't shout. Some of us are trying to sleep over here....;)

Conquest August 12 2008 10:00 AM EDT

Well maybe they don't care about your opinion either. This seems like a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black. Welcome to the internet where everyone is free to voice their opinion.

Threads have titles for a reason and if you open it to find that you don't like what is being said. Turn you chair 180 degrees, stand up, and walk out of the room! Or simply close the thread. No one is forcing you to read the arguments (not arguements!!!).

Blooderfly August 12 2008 10:01 AM EDT

Well we try to Evade the topic as it has been rather sore. The amount of evasion that has been shown has people arguing, but in the end its the evasive way for the community to have a full blow conversation. But yes when people don't learn that it shouldn't be blown outta proportion and evade the name calling then it has gotten outta hand.


8DEOTWP August 12 2008 10:01 AM EDT

I agree wholeheartedly. Evasion is overpowered FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!
Continue..

QBOddBird August 12 2008 10:02 AM EDT

You had me up until you didn't care about my opinion.


Then I realized you were my ex-gf.


I HATE YOU

8DEOTWP August 12 2008 10:02 AM EDT

What I should've said is..
You cannot change these people's opinions.. they think evasion is overpowered.. and it might be the AoF.. or maybe it's just Ranger who is overpowered.. who knows? I do know that you wont change these people's opinions, but this thread is just waiting to be swarmed by 'em!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 12 2008 10:12 AM EDT

a well thought out post, expressing ones opinion and backed by facts will often elicit a similar response. one resorting to sarcasm, hyperbole, melodrama, etc. will often elicit a stronger response. this is why people tend to use them. if they are used constantly however, they lose their power to accentuate a point and often just serve to annoy.

Little Anthony August 12 2008 10:15 AM EDT

the post below this will DERAIL so far away from the original topic. FLAME that person who reply this thread after me.

j'bob August 12 2008 10:18 AM EDT

" Welcome to the internet where everyone is free to voice their opinion." Um JarL, welcome to the real world where people are also free to read stuff they know is gonna bother them and then tell us about it in an open forum. You could have easily read Nic's rant and not posted in this thread but well, there you are. :) But I guess that's just the pot calling the kettle a milkbone. or something like that. Nic just wants everyone to do a little less arguemizing and a lot more hugging. Sheesh nic, what the bejezus were you thinking?????

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] August 12 2008 10:19 AM EDT


I will not hug a shouter.

QBOddBird August 12 2008 10:20 AM EDT

But would you hug me?

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] August 12 2008 10:22 AM EDT


No. We've been over this. You have the grabby hands.

j'bob August 12 2008 10:23 AM EDT

Come on now Bast, lets at least be honest with each other. You're not going to hug Nic because he misspelled "arguments", not because he's a shouter.
/me hugs Bast and passes the hug along to Nic ;)

j'bob August 12 2008 10:24 AM EDT

Grabby hands? Is THAT what that sensation is when I shake the ooty, the grabby hands?

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] August 12 2008 10:42 AM EDT


Let's be honest? You can't "pass" a hug -- you just wanted another excuse to squeeze Nic yourself.

j'bob August 12 2008 10:48 AM EDT

Well, as long as we're being honest... I can hug Nic at anytime, no excuse needed... ;)
wink wink nudge nudge know what i mean know what i mean

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 12 2008 10:50 AM EDT

say no more!

no reallly...say no more.

8DEOTWP August 12 2008 11:32 AM EDT

no more!

no reallly...say no more.

Godpanda August 12 2008 2:36 PM EDT

Actually I'm kind of interested to see where this goes.... ;P

QBOddBird August 12 2008 2:37 PM EDT

Are you interested in....the DRAMA??

th00p August 12 2008 4:32 PM EDT

Do I smell a dramallama appearance?!?

SBW August 12 2008 4:48 PM EDT

I'm interested in OB's booty

Ragatag August 12 2008 4:53 PM EDT

Bunnies

AdminLamuness August 12 2008 5:20 PM EDT

Due to recent events I'm fairly excited, so this is going to be complicated to keep PG, but I'm sure I can manage.

But to the subject at hand; STOP ARGUING OVER OB'S BOOTY!! That's all I ever see anymore on the home page. Ranger arguing with these girls and those boys and these boys arguing with these girls and those other boys (confused?). You know a trend that causes these arguments? An opinion. One sexy opinion is all it takes apparently. Everyone has them, whether or not we agree with it or disagree with it, everyone has one. And regardless as to WHAT we say, there is no possible way to change someone's sexy opinion. So when someone says something about "Hey, OB's booty is -quite- pleasant to the eye". Okay... They think OB's booty is pleasant to look at. But THIS is ALWAYS WHAT SEEMS TO HAPPEN:

  1. OB's booty shaking skill is godly
  2. But OB's booty shaking skill is good for this and that and can cure cancer
  3. However it's scary because it's overpowered
  4. But then again, it's the answer to world hunger
(carry on for like what was it...150 pages on one of these forum posts?)

You know what the best best is at this point? This works best in a spinny chair, but turn in a 180 degree direction until you're looking away from the computer, stand up, and join OB for booty shaking fun. Because that's pretty much the only way you're going to end the argument over whatever you guys are currently arguing about (I think it's something about whether OB's booty shaking is overpowered. Or maybe it's OB's booty being so evasive? I stopped reading the page after I posted my one response. But regrefully I read one of those other forums for about 10 seconds). As I said before; A sexy opinion is a sexy opinion. EVERYONE HAS ONE. Arguing about it is not going to change the sexy opinion.

So just take a deep breath, close the thread, and compliment OB's booty.

SBW August 12 2008 5:30 PM EDT

what about my booty? =(

QBOddBird August 12 2008 5:34 PM EDT

It can be Darth Booty's apprentice.

SBW August 12 2008 5:35 PM EDT

but it's pro!!!

Lord Bob August 12 2008 6:21 PM EDT

"But to the subject at hand; STOP ARGUING OVER DUMB STUFF!!!!!!!"

I'd say game balance is anything but "dumb stuff."

"You know a trend that causes these arguments? An opinion."

An opinion backed by numbers and facts. And even many of the people taking advantage of this currently overpowered strategy seem to have an -opinion- that backs the people complaining about it.

"-I don't like this skill, its stupid
-But this skill is good for this and that
-But its still stupid because its over powered
-But its good for that and this"

Except replace lines two and four with "but, but USD!"

"stand up, slowly walk away and into oncoming traffic "

Take your own advice, please.

Guess what, this is a forum about a single game. It's called Carnage Blender. It takes only a few brain cells to produce the logic necessary to figure out that, yes, discussions (and therefore arguments, this is the Internet) about the features, design, and balance of said game will ensue. Get over it already, or stop reading the CARNAGE BLENDER forum, which is, you know, a discussion forum about CARNAGE BLENDER!

"Honestly I could care less about your (the reader's) opinion at this point."

Likewise.

QBOddBird August 12 2008 6:30 PM EDT

Ugh, Lord Bob, I told you not to borrow my little Pwny without permission

Lord Bob August 12 2008 6:38 PM EDT

Ha!

three4thsforsaken August 12 2008 8:01 PM EDT

There are many ways to encourage people to get along and stop complaining. Shouting isn't one of them.

I don't get annoyed about many things, but oddly enough this really irritates me. A seemly good hearted attempt to calm things down turning itself into a hostile rant.

You can't fight bitching with bitching. I am a bit disappointed. Oh and mind the caps lock.

SBW August 12 2008 8:05 PM EDT

i concur. if you don't like it, LEAVE. (you'll come back sooner or later)

just take a break..

j'bob August 12 2008 8:12 PM EDT

cake rules and if you all had more cake in your diets your lives would have more meaning and you'd be less of complainers and you'd be prettier and your voices would be better suited for radio speaking.

CAKE. It's what's for dinner.

SNK3R August 12 2008 9:19 PM EDT

The cake is a lie. The pie's the truth.

SBW August 12 2008 9:28 PM EDT

brownies man!

[RX3]Cotillion August 12 2008 9:30 PM EDT

Dude... Waffles bro. Waffles trump all.

SBW August 12 2008 9:35 PM EDT

chocolate chipped ones.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] August 12 2008 10:07 PM EDT

HAGGIS!

SBW August 12 2008 10:08 PM EDT

what's haggies? =x

Cube August 12 2008 11:11 PM EDT

I would like to express an OPINION!!

I don't know why people get so emotional about the arguments actually, but it seems to happen. I try to stick to numbers rather than going back and forth needlessly when it degrades to that.

Also, Coca Cola.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 August 12 2008 11:15 PM EDT

Coca Cola, IMO.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] August 13 2008 1:19 AM EDT


Thread hijacking at its finest! Thanks to all of you, I now have to waste my precious time getting us all back on track. If you'll recall we were on OB's hands, good-touch/bad-touch, and J'Bob's overweening interest in hugging Nic, who shouts.

If you all want to do coke v. soda v. pop, do it in Nic's _other_ thread, please.

QBOddBird August 13 2008 1:22 AM EDT

Very nice, Bast. I caught that little detail.


You mentioned that there was a good touch to being in OB's hands.


...I knew you'd come around someday.

SimplyNic August 13 2008 1:48 AM EDT

"stand up, slowly walk away and into oncoming traffic "

Take your own advice, please."

;P At the rate things have been going as of late, chances are I will one of these days.

Cube August 13 2008 1:51 AM EDT

My mistake, accept my apologies. Have a coke for free.

1. I propose OB's hands are always good touch.
2. I also propose that Jbob hug Nic soon so he stops shouting.

Any disagree? I doubt you could; the evidence seems pretty solid to me.

SimplyNic August 13 2008 1:57 AM EDT

"i concur. if you don't like it, LEAVE. (you'll come back sooner or later)"

Left once, came back.
Leave twice, less likely I'll come back ;P

INDColtsFan18 August 13 2008 2:03 AM EDT

The server will be down for about ten minutes to apply security updates at about 3:AM EDT.

OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!!

I wonder if evasion is considered a security update...
